1: The number of playoff games the Browns have won since they came back to Cleveland in 1999. That win came last year in Cleveland’s 48-37 win in the Wild Card round.
17: The numbers of games in the season. This will be the first year of the 17-game schedule. As a corresponding move, there was one less preseason game this August.
3: The numbers of primetime games featuring Cleveland this season (for now). In addition to playing on Thursday (Week 7, Denver Broncos), Sunday night (Week 12, Baltimore Ravens) and Monday (Week 17, Pittsburgh Steelers), the Browns’ Week 15 matchup against the Raiders on Week 15 has yet to be given a time, meaning it could be flexed into a primetime spot if needed.
$36.6 million: The amount of the contract extension Nick Chubb signed in the offseason. The deal is for three years and comes with $20 million in guaranteed money. That can buy you a lot of Chubb Crunch.
10: The number of games wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. missed last season due to injury. This year is a make-or-break year for the talented wide receiver, who’s entering the last year of his contact.
25: The number of Demetric Felton, a rookie running back out of UCLA who could be all over the field for the Browns this year. The 23-year-old is listed as a running back but also spent time in the preseason playing wide receiver and returning kicks.
5: The number of running backs on the initial 53-man roster. This Browns team is built around smash mouth football, so it’s no surprise it values guys who can handle the rock. In addition to Chubb and Felton, the Browns broke camp with Kareem Hunt, D’Ernest Johnson and fullback Andy Janovich.
39: The age of Browns coach Kevin Stefanski, who is entering his second year as the Browns head coach. Stefanski was named the NFL’s Coach Of The Year last season after he led the Browns to the playoffs. Hopefully he doesn’t have to coach from his basement again this year.
.518: The combined winning percentage of the Browns’ 2021 opponents. While it’s the ninth toughest schedule in the league, it’s the easiest strength of school of all the AFC North teams.
10.5: Over/under for regular season wins, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, tied for sixth most in the NFL.
+1600: The Browns’ title odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, the eighth-best odds in the NFL.
